I would like to find the collection that used to be around here of JUST the Christmas shows by Bing. Without culling them manually............ I found a reference to such, but can't find the actual beast. Am i really lost, or did Radio $ eat it up? Thanks, all

Aye, but if it's a truly old-fashioned Christmas that you want to celebrate, try http://www.archive.org/details/christmasshortworks2011_1112_librivox
Works by Dickens, Saki, de Maupassant, and Kipling, a family reading of Good King Wenceslas, The Christmas Alligator and a Cowboy's Christmas, and a description of a painting of the Nativity, among others. Perhaps not as catchy as Der Bingle singing Jingle Bells with the Andrews Sisters, but definitely worth the listen!
